I fell sick these days, i guess it’s time not only to reflect on this week but also reflect on my life. I came across severe self questioning, when I skipped whole afternoon’s class to take a bus going around Singapore for fun. On the way back, I start to confuse. What kind of life do I want to live? Sometimes I want to live a peaceful and unassuming life, but sometimes I feel the urge to create and change. Sometimes I like to spend hours to watch movement of clouds but sometime I suddenly want to push myself so hard that I lost 10KG’s weight in one month and fell sick(this August). I feel this two ideals of life keep fighting with each other and I start to doubt whether they can really coexist. Maybe it’s the time to make a choice.

Last week’s lecture was about sharing. Some people from outside came and shared what they are working on. I generally feel good about all the sharings, some posted very interesting problems and solutions.

HDB is about creating a virtual community for students, but it looks more like for children rather than for secondary students. What if change it to a virtual community for kindergarten kids, through iPad? It would be very funny 😀

Purpple is about sharing photos for food and also feedbacks. I like this sharing feedback idea, but I think rather than letting user upload photos voluntarily, why not we provide an online platform to allow food stores to upload photos themselves, future food stores no longer need menus! Bring your phone will do! Just read the QR code on the wall! It sounds so interesting! 😀

Youtell is also about sharing feedback, it’s more general therefore a more clear classification is necessary. About their idea on short comment tag, A chinese chatting social network QQ already use it for some time but it didn’t work very well I think.

Gary Ong, I don’t really like his games, it’s of no value to the community.

Candlestick is interesting because it tries to win you money by observing patterns. If everyone uses this software, who wins? 😀

FirstAid is a game of life. It seeks to save lives. I respect this a lot! 😀 Even though the rough design of the game is boring but I am really keen to help them.

Module-Review is again about feedback and review. I already used this website for a year and it’s really glad to see that they are planing about module planning tool and feedback about professor. I think if he can use CS3216 timetable builder it will save a lot of mutual work…

I realize that many people are working on feedback systems. Maybe it’s really human’s nature to reference on other’s behaviors and results first before taking actions. Feedback system is not well covered in many cases. Working on this is an opportunity.

  1. What kind of life do I want to live?

    This is an extremely important question. I am glad to see that you are asking it.

    Remember that life is not like a computer game. You only live once and if you screw up, you cannot reload old saved game and continue.

    I hope that you will find the answer to this question by the end of the Semester. If not, then keep trying. Hopefully, you will figure this out before you graduate and hit the *real* world.

    Sometimes I like to spend hours to watch movement of clouds but sometime I suddenly want to push myself so hard that I lost 10KG’s weight in one month and fell sick(this August).

    Hard work is good, but a balance needs to be struck.
